SINGER | COMPOSER | SONGWRITER | PERFORMER
Icon in Brazil, Johnny Hooker, describes himself as "a fierce woman in a man's body with tearful eyes". He was awarded Best Male Performer at the Brazilian Music Awards and dazed the musical industry with his first solo album "Eu Vou Fazer uma Macumba para te Amarrar, Maldito!", that was chosen as one of the best albums of the year by Rolling Stone magazine. Taking the Brazilian pop music scene by a storm, Johnny blends local rhythms like samba, brega, frevo and axé music, composing songs that challenge gender, expression and Brazilian music's own identity.
Rock in Rio was the start of his 2017 tour, in front of 32 thousand people that came just to see him. More than 70 concerts and 132 thousand attendees all over Brasil, Hooker is now starting his first European tour to present his second album "Coraçao", released in August 2017.
